To the editor of THE EAGLE:

Congratulations to the Pittsfield Parade Committee for another outstanding Fourth of July presentation.

However, a special recognition is due the Windsor Fire Department for its remembrance of the fallen heroes of the Prescott, Ariz., Hot Shots by marching in the Hot Shots' uniforms and single-file formation.

It brought home a poignant reminder about the dangers faced by our loyal first responders whenever an alarm rings. JOSEPH W. RYAN
